The BTTF – UCS DeLorean Time Machine is the the latest project to hit 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. The project was getting very close to the Winter Review deadline but it garnered enough supporters with only 8 minutes to spare. This is Team BTTF’s second project to get the required supporters for it to have a chance to become an official LEGO set with the first one being the first being the regular The DeLorean Time Machine (21103). This version of the DeLorean was build by Legohaulic and is fit with the RC Function system (see below). Although it won’t get 88 mph, it’ll still be pretty fun to have if it becomes an official set.
The UCS DeLorean now joins the Macross VF-1 Valkyrie, Sherlock, Legend of Zelda Iron Knuckle Encounter, Japanese Old Style Architecture, and The Adventure Time Project in the Winter Review Stage. Congratulations again to Team BTTF for this achievement!
Congratulations on 10,000 supporters!
Congratulations, m.togami and Legohaulic, for reaching 10,000 supporters just in the nick of time for the Winter 2014 LEGO Review deadline!
We now officially advance this project to the Review phase.
What happens now?
This project moves from the Idea stage to the Review stage. A “LEGO Review Board” composed of designers, product managers, and other key team members will examine the idea. We’ll build concept models and determine if the concept meets our high standards for what it takes to be a LEGO product. This includes factors such as playability, safety, and fit with the LEGO brand. Every potential LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.
The LEGO Review Begins in May
This project qualifies for the First 2014 Review beginning in May. For more information about the LEGO review process, see this knowledge base article.
The review is a thorough process and from its start, and can take several months. When finished, we make a “go/no go” decision to develop and sell a product based on the BTTF – UCS DeLorean Time Machine concept.
When the review is complete, we will inform you of our decision. If green-lit, this project goes into the longest phase of the project; the Development phase. During this time, LEGO model designers refine the product and develop it for release, we create the product materials (box, instructions, marketing), and get everything ready for a production run. This also takes several months.
We will post follow-up information and our decision here.
